    I got new charger too. It seems the proble is the charging circuit of the gameboy itself

    Can you try to clean the metal contact bits on the charger and the GBA device?

    Also clean the metal contact bits on the battery and battery compartment.

    quick question... you did get new "rechargable" batteries for it?

    Have you ever thought that your charger is broken instead of your battery? Do you have another charger to test your GBA?

My GBA SP wont charge

The lead or plug on your charger may be cracked. I have a SP charger but it has a bit of the plastic cracked off and has to be in a certain position to work properly. Otherwise you will need a new battery.

My G.B.A system does not power up

Same thing happened to me.
I got the blue one.
The problem is your battery has ran out if energy and the adapter/charger is done out of power with the inputs. So get a new adapter/charger and charge it for like 1 day.

Battery keeps loosing charge- kymco cruiser 125, 2005

I had this exact same problem on a hipster 125, it was a faulty regulator module ( mounted under the seat) I also found a short circuit (somewhere) in the wiring loom between the regulator output and the chassis (probably what killed the regulator in the first place!) I cut and replaced the entire wire to save removing most of the loom and after testing reg to ensure it was dead i fitted a new one (about £60) bike charges and runs like a dream now even with fully lights approx 80% of the time. good luck
